ia64: allocate percpu area for cpu0 like percpu areas for other cpus
cpu0 used special percpu area reserved by the linker, __cpu0_per_cpu, which is set up early in boot by head.S. However, this doesn't guarantee that the area will be on the same node as cpu0 and the percpu area for cpu0 ends up very far away from percpu areas for other cpus which cause problems for congruent percpu allocator. This patch makes percpu area initialization allocate percpu area for cpu0 like any other cpus and copy it from __cpu0_per_cpu which now resides in the __init area. This means that for cpu0, percpu area is first setup at __cpu0_per_cpu early by head.S and then moved to an area in the linear mapping during memory initialization and it's not allowed to take a pointer to percpu variables between head.S and memory initialization.
